I stayed for two nights in the off-season in this hotel. It is not in the center of Baden-Baden, but is a nice 25-minute walk along the river into town, past a park and some gorgeous homes.
The hotel is great value for the money. No, there isn't a tv in the room, but for the rate (we paid 42 euros a night for a double with no shower/toilet, but the toilets and shower room were adjacent to our room and no one else was using them!) it can't be beat. The room was a good size, the bed firm but comfortable, and the room was tidy and clean. Towels and toiletries were provided, which we hadn't expected.
The breakfast is a typical German affair - rolls, a tray of cheese slices, a tray of sliced meats, juice, some muesli, some canned fruit, and coffee or tea. Again, considering it's included in your room rate, it's a good deal. The owner who was running the breakfast room and took care of our bill was not particularly friendly, but was a typical no-nonsense German woman.
Don't forget to grab the discount card when it's offered at breakfast - it's good for 10 percent off spa services at the thermal baths as well as other places in town. It offsets the 2.80 euros charge levied by the town (in addition to your room rate).
Overall I would say don't expect American amenities, just enjoy the clean room and spend your time (and money!) out in the town.
